Thursday, April 26 At Landmark's E Street Cinema





Sebastián Lelio

UK, 2017, 114 minutes

Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams star in this adaptation of Naomi Alderman’s novel about a woman who returns home to her orthodox Jewish community in London and rekindles a romance with her cousin’s wife. Happily single and living a rich life as a photographer in New York, Ronit (Weisz) is very much the black sheep of her London-based Orthodox Jewish family. When her revered rabbi father dies, Ronit returns home to pay her respects and liquidate her inheritance. But surprises await, chief among them the news that Dovid (Alessandro Nivola) — the heir apparent to Ronit's father—has married Ronit's childhood friend, Esti (McAdams). While Dovid prepares to take over the hallowed place at the synagogue, Ronit and Esti become reacquainted. An old flame is reignited, one that could torch everything this family most cherishes.—Toronto International Film Festival
